Cherokee thoughts, honest and uncensored

Univ of Oklahoma Pr | October 31, 2008 | 200 pages

"Distinguished novelist Robert J. Conley here examines some of the most interesting facets of the Cherokee world. In 26 essays laced with humor, understatement, and even sarcasm, this popular writer takes on politics, culture, his people's history, and what it means to be Cherokee." "Readers who think they know Conley may be surprised as he reveals historical information not widely known or written about. From criticism of Cherokee Confederate general Stand Watie and contemporary "Cherokee Wannabes" to admiration for Ned Christie and Henry Starr, often considered criminals, and discussions of such legendary figures as Dragging Canoe, Nancy Ward, and Will Rogers, Conley traces the dogged persistence of the Cherokee people in the face of relentless incursions upon their land and culture."--BOOK JACKET.
